RESOURCE: Library of .slr files (to run user-delimited searches) for use with CBReader

Dear colleagues,

The CBReader allows searching through user-delimited groups of texts, rather than the entire corpus. This functionality is a powerful facet of the CBReader's search capacities. However, I have found that creation of such groups can be cumbersome with the CBReader point-and-click interface, especially if the groups one wishes to create are very large, and not captured by the traditional organisation of the canon.

Re: QUERY> Use of romanized Sanskrit in CBETA edition of the Taisho Tripitaka

Hi, Matthew: This is not quite the case. . Actually, in the PRINTED Taisho pages of the Mahapratisaradharani in T. 1153 (vol. 20, p. 632), there is no Siddham; the text of the dharani uses only Sinographs to transcribe the Sanskrit. The Taisho editors have conveniently provided a complete Romanized transcription in footnote 1 on pp. 632b-634a and a complete Siddham transcription on pp. 632b-637b. So the Romanized and Siddham transcriptions were NOT a part of the original text.

Re: QUERY> Use of romanized Sanskrit in CBETA edition of the Taisho Tripitaka

Many thanks to William Bodiford, Alexander O'Neill and Christian Wittern for straightening me out here. I now
have all that I need, confirming that the Sanskrit text already appeared in the original Taisho in Siddham script,
and that the romanized notes were based on that and not, apparently, on an independent Sanskrit source.

sarva-mangalam,

Matthew
